Langlois Chateau Saumur Blanc Vieilles Vignes

Edouard Langlois and his wife Jeanne Chateau founded their winemaking estate in 1885. Later generations carefully expanded the estate, building one of the finest and most representative vineyard holdings in the Loire Valley, a region known around the world for the quality, variety and value of its wines. The Loire Valley is France’s second largest producer of sparkling wine, so it was fitting that, in 1973, the Bollinger family took an ownership interest in Langlois-Chateau. Today Langlois-Chateau is best known for its rich and elegant Crémant de Loire sparkling wines, some of the finest in the region. Crémant de Loire is a rigorously regulated appellation that specifies hand grape-picking, light pressing and long maturation. Langlois-Chateau is the only Loire winery to control the winemaking process for its Crémant from start to finish.

The white Saumur by the Domaine Langlois-Chateau is a 100% Chenin Blanc wine, the best grape variety in the Saumur region. Coming from some of the oldest vines (vieilles vignes) in the vineyard, the grapes are hand picked and sorted, in order to get the best quality in the bottle. After fermentation, the wines is aged 4 months on the lees to give a richer, rounder mouthfeel to the finished wine.

Tasting Note:
Opening with a captivating aroma of white flowers and exotic fruits, on the palate it is intense, fruity and powerful, with light citrus notes in the long finish.
